COVID-19 and your taxes

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been, and continues to be, extensive legislation relating to taxes and economic relief for businesses and individuals. Since this is constantly evolving, you should verify all information by accessing the IRS and Treasury websites for up-to-date changes.

The IRS has extended Federal income tax deadlines until July 15, 2020. We have prepared a simplified table to help you understand the ramifications of the extension. However, not all states have the same deadline.

Extended from April 15th to July 15, 2020
  • 2019 Federal income tax filing deadline
  • 2019 Federal income tax payment deadline
  • Federal estimated payments due April 15th, 2020
Balances paid on or before July 15, 2020
  • No penalties or interest accrue on balances due
Balances paid on or after July 16, 2020
  • Penalties and interest accrue on remaining unpaid balances
Applies to all individuals, trusts, estates, C corps, S corps, partnerships and gift filings automatically – no need to file an extension unless additional time is needed beyond July 15, 2020 to file.
